Anupehr has been creating some incredible LEGO versions of famous landmarks from around the world. One of her most recent, the Rialto bridge, won ‘Best Architectural Style’ at BrickCon earlier this month. This is one builder to keep an eye on. She has managed to fly under the radar for some time but she has Continue reading →

LEGO provides the perfect medium for recreating the buildings and landmarks of the world — LEGO has even released a line of official LEGO Architecture sets. Check out our coverage of the official sets, and don’t miss all the gorgeous architectural models created by LEGO fans from around the world.
David Frank (aka Fraslund) has been working on a medieval Castle layout for most of the last year and he finally unveiled it at BrickCon. His work was nothing short of breath-taking. The level of detail was stunning and I discovered incredible new details everytime I looked it over. David is definitely a builder to Continue reading →
This window by Projecto Construir is mind-blowing and the level of detail is outstanding. It has been a long time since I have seen a build of this caliber. This creation is absolutely a work of art. Bruce H., from Classic Castle says, “Projecto Construir is a Portuguese social welfare association that was founded with Continue reading →
Gabriel Thompson (qi_tah) is really building amazing stuff these days. Here is another one of his creations – oriental Teahouse. I admire classic asian architecture, and just love the colors and details on this one.
Dark-Alamez has built us a Chicago street section. Two of the buildings are based on real ones, while the third one is out of his imagination. It took me just a glance at the thumbnail to recognize the city this creation represents. Aside from beautiful buildings my favorite is the Chicago Loop railway segment.
The LEGO Halo group over on Flickr is hosting a contest that challenges LEGO builders to design their own sets to counter the fact that one of LEGO’s competitors has the Halo license. Théo (Titolian) joins the fray with this fake LEGO Architecture set. It’s an interesting little structure, wonderfully presented and immediately recognizable. (And Continue reading →
Buildingxyz (Michel Labelle) built his vision of the future home from LEGO. This is mid 21st century family house in California. I really like the house design and how Michel also equipped the whole interior with futuristic furniture.
I find myself wanting to to grab a café au lait, a good book, and sittng on the patio outside Carson Hart’s French Café. True Carson’s building has no rocket engines, pew-pew lasers or cyborg co-pilots, but the amount of other awesome details more than makes up for it. I have always appreciated the amount Continue reading →
Here are two similar creations built by Softa Rae. Original one is a few years old, while IIIB is just completed. It was build as a commission for some very lucky girl – it will be used as her doll house! Doll and the dogs are the only 3 non-LEGO elements in this build – all other 17.000 Continue reading →
This gorgeous and serene Fish Cannery (those are words not often heard) by Nathan shows off some great techniques and a good sense of artistic style. The color palette Nathan’s used is perfect to create the sense of calm, cold silence in this building based off architecture in the easternmost town in the United States.
The archaeological purist in me had initially passed this up because it’s white (versus the tan-hued limestone and weathered brick of the real thing), but the Internet has convinced me that this LEGO Colosseum by Ryan McNaught — whose equally epic Saturn V rocket we highlighted earlier this year — is too epic to ignore. Continue reading →
Dave Kaleta‘s 1007 Mountain Drive drew a lot of attention at Brickworld 2012. This creation has both an intriguing overall design as well as individual fascinating details such as the swimming pool, porsche and more that you can see on Flickr.
Almost shockingly, I have managed to build something. I’ve been having quite a lot of fun lately playing with Neo-Classical architecture in microscale, and the recent abundance of good microscale pillar pieces, like the telescope piece, are conducive to that. Anyway, here’s the Temple of Ehlonna, goddess of the Forest, who makes her home in Continue reading →
Heath Flor builds a replica of Smolny Cathedral in St. Petersburg, Russia. It took Heath almost a year to plan and build it, and he used between 20 and 30 thousand bricks to complete it. This is his largest project so far, and I must say it was truly worth the effort! It is simply Continue reading →
The stonework technique on this Lifeboat Station by Derfel Cadarn is wonderful, especially when combined with the architectural features like the archway and roof design.
